Obama campaign still asking for donations

Shortly before the election, the Obama campaign sent out this email: “If you’ve waited until the last minute to give, this is the moment. This is the last time I’ll ask you.”

Joe Biden can go gaffe-free for longer than that promise lasted:

In what he called “my last election,” President Barack Obama scored a hard-fought but comfortable victory over Mitt Romney last month, but that doesn’t mean his email list will not longer be hit up for campaign cash. To wit, Mr. Obama’s electoral operation, Obama for America, is asking their supporters to contribute after filling out a form backing his plan to increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans.

“Thanks for sharing your story. The next chapter begins today. Stand with President Obama for the next four years,” a subsequent contribution form declares. Suggested donation amounts range from $15 to $1,000 and a picture of Mr. Obama is presented with the text, “Stand with me, work with me, let’s finish what we’ve started.”

Presumably the gift registry is still open for business as well.

Why the need to keep fundraising as if they’re still campaigning? Because they’re still campaigning:

Meanwhile, Bill Clinton continues to ask for donations to help retire Hillary’s 2008 campaign debt.
